Maybe I'm just feeling a bit below par, but I'm getting increasingly more tetchy about the need to attribute items before
Surely the reason for buying anything that you admire is for that, and that alone? The piece gives you a buzz, which in all likelihood means that the enjoyment it gives you over the years will surpass the information about who, or who did not, designed it - and the price paid. Certainly many of the things that I've bought over the years, that at the time I thought were expensive, have proved, long term, to be super buys; both for there aesthetic pleasure and
for their improved value.
What you are asking seems more related to the 'signature' of the vase, which to me smacks more of ensuring an investment - unless you are only interested in collecting Ms Stevens' designs? If the piece is of good quality - and it is - then just decide whether or not you're happy with the price.
Sorry................rant over :huh: Although, there is a message there
Edit: The catalogue Leni so kindly refers to is available through the website
